Product Information

product description

The BlackBerry® Pearl™ smartphone is designed with you in mind. It looks and feels good in your hand, but still offers you everything you need for your life on the go.

Flexible Communications

You don’t stay in touch with all the people in your life in the exact same way. Even though they’re smaller than other BlackBerry® smartphones, BlackBerry Pearl Series smartphones can help you stay on top of what’s happening and contact the people in your life when you’ve got news.

SureType Technology

SureType® technology combines an innovative keyboard layout with dynamic software to help you type quickly and accurately on a narrow, compact smartphone. It’s designed to learn your typing and word patterns so you can focus on getting the message out.

And, just for good measure, the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 smartphone even has a spell check feature.

Camera and Video Recording

With the camera on a BlackBerry Pearl smartphone, you can be prepared to snap a pic of unexpected, important—or even embarrassing—moments.

Then you can share your pictures—in an email, picture message, or instant message chat. Or upload them to sites like Facebook® and Flickr™2.

And when an event can’t be captured in a single instant, use sound and action to tell the story with the video camera on your BlackBerry Pearl smartphone.


Whether you want to watch a video clip or listen to your favorite songs, your BlackBerry Pearl smartphone delivers visual and sound quality that keeps up with your needs.

And with the BlackBerry® Pearl™ Flip 8220 smartphone, you can turn it on its side to enjoy videos in widescreen.5

You can even use BlackBerry® Media Sync to transfer desktop iTunes® music files to your smartphone.


Imagine being able to check your email, shop online, make phone calls and stream video on your smartphone without being connected to your service provider’s cellular network. With the BlackBerry® Pearl™ Flip 8220 smartphone, you can do all of this and maybe even save a little money.

Whether you set up a wireless network at home or use a public hotspot, Wi-Fi® gives you access to all of your BlackBerry® services.

Mobile Streaming

Connect to a Wi-Fi® network or use your BlackBerry® Pearl™ 8130 smartphone to access the mobile versions of news, television and other media sites. Interested in a funny clip from YouTube or the incredible play from last night’s game? Hit up a hotspot or connect to a wireless network and enjoy.
